Hi nesK000!

With JTo from the cutoff, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. Due to this, I will raise to 60. I then have the button make a HUGE, abnormal shove. While my hand does have some potential, it's nowhere near strong enough to call this type of bet. If I had 10 10 or JJ, this would even be a borderline play unless the opp is a total maniac... against a realistic player, I'd even muck those hands.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Excellent!

You've done all 3 tasks and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job!

Step Two

Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze it for you.
Please watch the following video and answer the question below.



List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet?

Then study the Cash Game Course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.

So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus.

1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer.
2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it.
3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz.

Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks complete and we will award you with your next buy-in.

Best of Luck!

Hi,
I passed the quiz and here are the answers on your question:

1. To put a lot of preassure on opponent
2. To bluff people off decent hand
3. To gain value from strong hands.

Here is my hand where i lost all my money,i know where my mistake was i should raise him on the flop not to wait to get a straight but i wanted to trick them
(now i saw that something is wrong with the replay,it not show the opponent's cards, he had Q J )

Hi nesK000! I'll take a look at this hand for you.

You have TT in the small blind and there are three limps in front of you. There are two good options here. One is raising it up to try and either win the pot immediately or get heads up (because TT plays best against one player, not several) and the other is to just complete the blind and go set-mining for the cheapest price possible. I think I'd usually just complete here, because it's unlikely that everyone will fold, even if you make a big raise.
As played, you make it 5bb to go, which is fine, so it's a bit annoying that you get 2 callers, as the flop will usually contain overcards to your pair, and it's likely that at least one of the villains will out-flop you. As luck would have it, though, you flop a set on KT7. Since you were the pre-flop raiser, it is standard for you to continue your aggression with a bet on the flop, whether you hit it or not. You decided to check, and this is a mistake. Slowplaying is not recommended, especially on a board like this, because you don't want villains to have the opportunity to take a free card and make a straight to beat you.
I'd lead out for a bet of about 3/4 pot, with the plan being to get the rest of my stack in on the turn. As played, it's checked around, and the turn brings an 8. This is a bad card, because hands like J9 just made a straight, and a number of hands picked up additional outs to straights and flushes. Now you bet, but it's too small, just 10c into 35c. You need to get more value for your monster hand, and make it a mistake for villains to call with draws. At this price, they can make profitable calls with draws.
Both villains call, which means you have to dodge a bunch of bad cards on the river, and often need to make a boat or quads to feel comfortable. The is a relative blank. A villain may have improved to two pairs, and QJ just made a straight, but at least the flush draw didn't complete!
The pot is now bigger than your remaining stack, so you should go all in for value. Anything less is pointless, because you're committed to calling a raise anyway. You bet very small, a villain raises and you call. The result is not shown here, but if villain had a better hand and dragged the pot, then partial blame is on you, because you slowplayed yourself to death.
You answered the quiz above with three reasons to make a big bet. The third was "To gain value from strong hands." You had a very strong hand on the flop, but you missed a whole street of value, by slowplaying. I expect that villain would still have called a larger bet on the flop with QJ, as he had an open-ended straight draw, but a large bet would mean the pot would be bigger on the turn, allowing you to shove all in. With that method, you would have put all your money in as a big favourite. By waiting until the river before putting all your money in, you allowed villain to suck out, and got your money in with the worst hand.
Be more aggressive with your strong made hands in future. On wet boards like this, don't slowplay. Bet between 3/4 and full pot on the flop and turn, to make it a mistake for villains to call with worse. Get value from drawing hands on the first two streets, because they won't be putting money in on the river if the draw doesn't complete.

Hope this helps!
To get more tuition on cash game basics, I recommend going to live training sessions for the Wednesday and Saturday Games if you can. You'll even be able to play alongside other PSO members in the Homegame club and get instant feedback on the way you play your hands. Good luck!

Cheers,
Arty
